Kimberly Rogers, the 2007 Miss Philadelphia, will ring the opening bell at the Philadelphia Stock Exchange on Tuesday, May 15. Remarks will begin promptly at 9:20 a.m. Photography is permitted on the trading floor.
The newly crowned 23-year-old Miss Philadelphia is a recent graduate of Princeton University where she majored in molecular biology. She will be competing for the title of Miss Pennsylvania next month with the hopes of competing in the Miss America pageant in January. Her platform is the prevention and elimination of depression in youngsters, which she believes is a factor for increased crime rates.
